On April 2, the NRA will unveil a report reiterating their calls for placing armed guards in schools to prevent a repeat of the kind of crime that happened at Sandy Hook Elementary.
The report will be framed around the NRA’s National School Shield Program and will contain “legislative proposals for Congress and steps school officials and law enforcement can take to prevent gun violence at schools.”
The report not only suggest armed guards as part of the solution to gun violence in schools but will also provide guidelines for training those guards as well as teachers in the use of firearms.
As NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre said on Dec. 21, 2012, one week after the Sandy Hook shooting:
[In the wake of such shootings,] rather than face their own moral failings the media demonize lawful gun owners, amplify their cries for more gun laws, and fill the national media with misinformation and dishonest thinking that only delay meaningful action, and all but guarantee that the next atrocity is only a news cycle away… They perpetuate the dangerous notion that one more gun ban or one more law imposed on peaceable, lawful people will protect us where 20,000 other laws have failed.
…[But] it’s now time for us to assume responsibility for our schools. The only way–the only way to stop a monster from killing our kids is to be personally involved and invested in a plan of absolute protection.
The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good good guy with a gun.
Would you rather have your 911 call bring a good guy with a gun from a mile away or from a minute away?
